If you didn’t manage to watch the live talkback we had with directors, playwrights and cast members who were involved in each of the pieces. This talkback was moderated by Tony Award winning producer, Rashad V. Chambers and can be watched at the link below.

“Being a part of ATC’s inaugural Short Play Festival was an enriching highlight of a very challenging year. Working with the whole ATC team, under Chad Austin’s compassionate and insightful leadership, and becoming a resident artist at ATC as a result of the festival has provided the kind of artistic support that I have truly been looking for. I count my lucky stars that I decided to take the chance and enter the festival!”
